First thing first, the plaque must be firmly attached and the stitching all around should be evenly done. The zippers has to be embossed on the back side. They should include “YKK” or “RiRi” or “Lampo” or “Opti” or “Ipi”. If the “R” doesn’t have a curved leg, it is a fake and you should be able to find a white tag with numbers in an interior pocket.
If you cannot find brand markings on the turn locks, it signifies a knock-off. The age of bag and the type of zipper should be consistent (each year the zippers have a different look). The quilting should appear to be perfect, with flawless pocket stitches matching with the body.
